Follow the steps below to configure ControlD on your ASUS router.
Keep in mind that ASUS routers use legacy DNS at the moment.
Open the ASUS router interface by navigating to it in your browser. You can reach it via
Navigate to the WAN section in the Advanced Settings sidebar.
Next, change the “Connect to DNS Server automatically” option No. Once you do that, you will see two DNS Server fields appear.
Now determine which DNS resolver you want to use. If you are configuring our free DNS resolvers, you can use these IPs:
If you are configuring a custom DNS resolver, you can find your custom DNS IP in the My Account section:
ASUS allows you to configure two DNS resolvers but you can use just one.
The router will use DNS Server 1 for resolving queries, then DNS Server 2 as a backup. You can put the same IP for both servers.
Once you have selected the DNS IP you want to use, you can enter it in the Static DNS fields.
Finally, scroll to the bottom of the page and press Apply.
Once the router saves the configuration, you are using ControlD on your network!
Keep in mind that if you configure a custom DNS on any of the individual devices connected to this router, those devices will not be using the DNS you configured here.
